Critic Consensus: Bruce Willis and Thomas Jane are visibly bored by the dreary material in this sci-fi hodgepodge, proving that star power in service of a lousy script is no virtue.

Critic Reviews for Vice
Bruce Willis plays the CEO of a futuristic resort where perfectly human-looking androids exist to fulfill their clients' deepest, darkest desires - none of which, it can safely be said, involve watching movies as relentlessly mediocre as this one.
Recombining elements of "Blade Runner," "Strange Days" and "A.I." makes Bruce Willis' "Vice" an intriguing sci-fi thriller, but in the end it doesn't do enough with its ideas.
It's one of those nearly straight-to-VOD pieces that fluctuates between boring and offensive, never rising above either adjective.
Evidencing more bullets than brains, "Vice" - a bit of ephemeral science-fiction twaddle directed by Brian A. Miller - has absolutely nothing to recommend it.
Audience Reviews for Vice
What sounds like a cheap version of Gamer actually ends up being more akin to another Bruce Willis film, "Surrogates". And just like Surrogates, Vice is garbage. It's runtime is thankfully short (96 minutes) but the dialogue is frequently painful and the story is more holes than substance. If trying really hard to mail it in wasn't an oxymoron, I'd say that's what Willis is mostly up to these days, and Vice is no exception, he's useless, most everyone else is clearly amateur, only Thomas Jane brings even one iota of talent to the piece and even then he is pretty heavily hammed down by the script. I suppose an argument could be made that Charlotte Kirk was more than tolerable, though this is quite likely thanks to her minor role. All that trash talking aside though, I've been far more bored in far bigger movies, so I guess it's all point of reference.
Because the story uses plot elements from every major cyborg or AI based movie you know exactly how this will play out. This actually works in the films favour and makes it more enjoyable to watch.
